Verjuice used to be common in the kitchen but fell from favour, to the point where there is no recorded recipe.
Made from unripe grapes in warmer climes and crab apples in Britain, it offers a mellow acidity in comparison to lemon juice or vinegar and has flavour enhancing qualities. Verjuice from crab apples can add a wonderful, fragrant appleyness.
My verjuice has been made from wild crab apples harvested from the hedgerows of Wiltshire.
